Lani is insightful, professional, funny, and seriously knows what she’s talking about. I finally understand how to get the million elements to click together, make the structure clearer and better, and get the story to flow the way I’d envisioned. It changed the way I write, probably forever.– Maya Rozenshein
When it comes to writing your novel, the first draft is only the first step. A finished manuscript is nothing but potential — but you need help and guidance if you’re going to take that manuscript and turn it into something your readers will love!
In this brand-new class, story expert Lani Diane Rich will show you how to take that rough diamond and make it shine. Lani will help you identify and strengthen conflict, your structure, your pacing and your climax. With engaging examples and references to popular works — including the recent blockbuster movie Guardians of the Galaxy — Lani will lead you through the process of making your book strong, accessible and engaging, without losing any of your unique voice and perspective. This class isn’t about turning your book into something average; it’s about making it shine!
